E382 – Lillian’s Finances & Felines



Lillian Karabaic is a good friend of the show, and has been on many times in the past, but today she brings something new: “purr-sonal” finance!  Her new project, Get Your Money Together, aims to knock down the difficulties standing between the average person’s goals of savings and affording the things they need in their lives.  She also fills us in on a recent train journey across Europe & Asia, ending in Siberia.  Follow Lily’s regularly release personal finance podcast at Oh My Dollar.

As always, Thank you to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers for providing libations and to all of our Patreon donors who keep us going.
